Since 1978, New Life Hiking Spa has been providing affordable wellness and weight loss retreats in the Green Mountains of Vermont. As the name suggests, hiking is the pinnacle of the programming. Three levels of guided hikes are offered each day and the retreat is located in Killington where the Appalachian Trail and Long Trail intersect. Spa services, fresh meals, yoga, fitness classes and Vermont hotel accommodations round out this award-winning destination each spring – early fall season.

This will be the 42nd summer hosting hiking and wellness retreats in Vermont. Over the years, New Life has received many awards and coverage not only for their affordability, but incredible programming. New Life Hiking Spa has been in Travel + Leisure as a #1 destination spa in 2016 and has been ranked #1 on the Spas of America listing for the past five years.

The 2019 retreat season will take place May 16 – September 30. Reservations are currently being taken for the upcoming season. The 21 night retreat is available for any 21 consecutive nights of the season, with check in any day. The first retreat for the year will be May 16 – June 5 and the last retreat of the year will be September 9 – 30.

Each guest of the Extended Stay Retreat will receive:

  •     Private accommodations with a private bath for 21 nights. New Life's headquarters is on Killington Mountain in a quaint, Vermont ski inspired lodge.
  •     21 expert guided hikes (a variety of levels offered each day). After breakfast, guests will gather with fellow New Lifers and spend the rest of the morning hiking. Three levels of hiking are offered each day that will challenge everyone according to their fitness level: the nature walk, the classic hike and the advanced hike.
  •     63 freshly prepared meals (calorie controlled). New Life prepares three delicious but healthy meals a day, made with fresh ingredients.
  •     All fitness classes (hiking is in the morning, fitness classes in the afternoon). After hiking and a healthy lunch, guests can take a class to improve their wellness.

  •     7 complementary massages. Guests can enjoy a relaxing massage or other service to sooth tired muscles with New Life's unpretentious and talented massage therapists.

  •     Use of a 20 person outdoor hot tub, or indoor lap swimming pool.
  •     Nutrition Lectures
